The creators at Starboard have just announced their newest product to hit the market: the FreeWing GO. The FreeWing Go is Starboard's recommended wing for entry level to advanced maneuvers not only on the water, but also for use in the snow, or skateboarding too.

“The FreeWing GO is my favorite wing for getting friends into winging. The ease of use from the shorter wingspan and plenty of power from the leading edge strut makes the GO a super choice for riding both on water and land,” says Svein Rassmussen, Starboard Chief Innovator.

The FreeWing GO has a pioneering, ultra compact geometry, suitable for any level of rider. The shorter wingtips do not catch when learning, gybing, during advanced water starts or rotations. The short wingtips also enhance the ease of use when not foiling or on snow, ice, with skateboards and land boards. The large diameter middle frame creates instant power and a rigid feel, getting you up and going, despite a relatively lower aspect ratio. The wind range is huge as its such an easy wing to control over powered. The handles are easy to grab, while the windows are positioned and optimized for important visibility/safety. With the size range from 2.5m – 6.5m, you can enjoy winging any day in all conditions from 8 knots to 40+ knots.

“As we share the FreeWing GO with wingboarders around the world, we are constantly reminded of the versatility and ease of use. From your first moment on water or land, to attempting your first rotations, the GO bring stokes to all level of riders around the globe,” says Clinton Filen, Starboard Brand Director.

And to top it all off, for every FreeWing sold, Starboard has pledged to plant a mangrove to absorb 1 ton of CO2 over 20 years and collect 1.1 kg of plastics from the oceans.
